On your first visit as a new patient, our staff will work with you to complete a questionnaire which will help us learn about you, your general health and other conditions. There will also be some additional administrative paperwork to complete.
During your time with Dr. Trachtenberg, he will also take a medical history, as well as a history of your current concern(s). In the process, he may examine not only your feet, but also observe you walking and examine your ankles, knees, hips and other related structures as well as evaluate shoes and shoe wear patterns. Additionally, X-rays, computerized and video analysis of walking, or other laboratory tests may be required to diagnose your conditions and assist him in formulating an appropriate treatment plan for you.
To accomplish this, close communication between doctor and patient is of prime importance. Please feel free to ask us about any of our policies, procedures, or discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
